Founded by Paul Parker, the purpose of Nebraska Summer Music Olympics is to encourage supervised summer study with the assistance of a teacher. The summer months are uniquely suited to gaining stronger knowledge and acquiring a higher level of achievement with a deeper sense of accomplishment towards one’s chosen instrument. NSMO is an opportunity for any student to take advantage of the summer to accelerate his/her progress.
UNO has partnered with the NE Summer Music Olympics for 36 years. This year’s finale took place on Friday, July 22, 2016 in the Strauss Performing Arts Center Recital Hall.
